The investment for the proposed expansion is pegged at Rs 60 crores. The group had appointed JM Morgan Stanley as merchant bankers for the deal.

MusicWorld is a division of Spencer & Co. the group’s retail sector arm. The store currently has 13 stores across Chennai, Kochi, Bangalore, Hyderabad, Delhi, Chandigarh and Kolkata.

The group is planning to have around 25 retail outlets by March 2003. MusicWorld had a turnover of around Rs 54 crores in the last fiscal year.
